Get ready to meet the parents! Ted King and Naomi Matsuda have been cast on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL as the parents of John “Finn” Finnegan, played by Tanner Novlan! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that King will be playing Jack, making his debut on Friday, July 30, and Matsuda will first appear as Li on Monday, Aug. 2.
ABC Daytime fans will recognize King from his many roles in daytime. He started as Ron on ANOTHER WORLD in 1993, then joined LOVING in 1994 as Danny, taking that character over to the short-lived spinoff THE CITY in 1995. From 2002-07, he played Lorenzo and Luis Alcazar on GENERAL HOSPITAL, and then appeared on ONE LIFE TO LIVE as Tomas Delgado from 2011-12. Viewers might also remember him as Inspector Andy Trudeau on CHARMED, Officer Jack Logan on TIMECOP, or his numerous guest appearances on shows like SEX AND THE CITY, FRASIER, NCIS, and HAWAII FIVE-0.
Matsuda also has some soap experience, having lathered up for a stint as John’s ex, Tori on DAYS OF OUR LIVES back in 2015. Fans might also recognize her from guest roles on shows like THE X-FILES, NEW GIRL, AMERICAN CRIME STORY, THE ROOKIE, and JUSTICE.
Jack and Li will be coming to Los Angeles to visit their new grandson, the baby that Finn and Steffy are expecting. Finn has been appearing on B&B for almost a full year now, but there’s still a lot we don’t know about the doctor and his background. He appears to be a loving partner for Steffy and ready to be a father to his son, but perhaps the arrival of his parents will shed new light on his character? One thing’s for sure — brace for the drama to come!
Stay tuned to find out what happens next!
